This is the first installment of "Rachel and Jenn Eat Philadelphia." In reality, this was a restaurant I went to with Eamonn, but that's ok.
|See? Totally fine.|
We were seated and given menus. Now one of my favorite things is misspellings on menus, street signs, billboards, or any public venue. Generally I see them in foreign businesses.
**Disclaimer!** I'm in no way suggesting that immigrants/foreigners misspell things because they are not intelligent. Obviously, if they can come into a country where they are not so familiar with the language and create a thriving business, then they are smarter and savvier than me. It's just that sometimes misspellings can sometimes be very unfortunate and hilarious. **End of disclaimer!**
So the first misspelling was of jalapeño as hallapino. Understandable.
|Can you see that? I know it's tiny.|
|What a pity.|
One fun thing about Ethiopian is that you are supposed to eat with your hands. The food is served on a spongy pancake bread which you use to pick up the food and eat it. I did that for a while, to pick up the lentils and veggies, but inevitably, I fell back into my fork habits.
|What can I say? I'm a fork person!|
